Wolcen: Major Content Patch

If you haven't already heard, Wolcen just dropped a huge 1GB content patch yesterday (6/24/2019). They added a lot of good stuff, and they are really moving along in the development path.  If you haven't heard of "Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem" before, it is an Action RPG similar to Diablo III that is being developed for Steam by Wolcen Studios.  On a side note, it is on sale this week for 20% off!

ATLAS: Present and Future

We have been at it since day one, that ugly and...well, let's just stick with ugly...launch. Even through the lag muck and server instability, you could read the stars and see the potential.  Right off the bat it was only for the tough, and we barreled through the glitchy log-ins, the shaky starter zones and the wretched "lawless" starting areas and found our way to the rafts.  Some were able to get to our island after 3-4 hours of learning how to tack, zig zag and fight through server borders and with a full stack of human hides, and then some were finally rescued after what seemed like days of being eaten alive by scorpions and crocodiles, only to quickly get used to dying to the cold, the wolves, the alpha horses, the water, the sharks and each other's general noob mistakes.
Yes, with the known developer, we did try to ARK it, or Dark and Light it...hell, we've even tried to Life is Feudal this one....and Atlas is just NOT those games.  Some visuals and sounds are there, but the depth and options and functionality is just SO much more.  What really took the game from just another ARK expansion to, the potential mmo of the decade, was getting out on our first schooner, the SS Skjoldr (video below).  The experience was entirely PvE, but when you have 13 people packed on to a single vessel and the guys repairing the ship are as vital as the helmsman steering and the deckhands manning the sails, it became something I haven't seen in a game since our friday night flights on the Decimator back in SWG.
We have had just a blast learning the game and surviving our island and our neighbors over the past couple weeks.  Though it may appear as if we are well off enough, growing from 30 actives day one, to more than double that now, we absolutely could use more folks interested in living the Atlas life.  Whether you are interested in navigating the high seas, captaining a brigand, farming the tundra, mucking through politics, taming elephants or exploring the massive (30-40 hours of sailing from one end to the other) world, it is all here and we have many members willing to help you get started.
Here is a few screencaps and videos to give you an idea of what we have been up to:

Can't afford new system for gaming, then I might have a solution

Recommended Posts

For those that can't afford a new computer, but the current one you have isn't meeting up to your demands try this on.
This is not an advertisement this is something I want to share with all CotP users that are not in the best of Financial savings for a new system.

$35.00 per month (-10.00 with my discount code) you can have a system that is WELL worth your money. So just some insight, all you need is the internet and a computer and their systems will take the load off.

Each system is its own - no one else will be able to use it 

(What you get to use on the other side)
CPU: INTEL XEON 8 cores dedicated threads
GPU NVIDIA GTX 1080 equivalent
STORAGE 256GB Secured
Memory 12GB DDR4

Each time the technology upgrades so do your system with no additional cost. 
PROMOTION CODE: CHRUMXNN

So how exactly does this work, I mean, i've heard about it a fair bit, but now you've got me curious because I can only assume there'd be a fair bit of lag from the distancing/it being cloud-based (I ASSUME.)

$35 x 12 = $350+$70 = $420 a year, $1260 for 3 years.

HIGH END upgrade kit for Motherboard, CPU, and Ram = $750. - Good for 3 years or more.
    https://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.3821024&Description=upgrade kit

MID Grade upgrade runs about $300 for an I7, $100 for a MB, and $200 for 16gb 3200 Ram = $600.
  CHip prices will come down a bit in June as the global CPU shortage will wane a bit.

With one upgrade kit your system is good for another 3 years at least, equal to $1260 bucks for 3 years of their rental service.
In between those three years, you can upgrade your Graphics card - which is what most people need but is prohibitively expensive right now. ($800)

Over the long run, you do better if you spend the time to shop, reserve purchases for holiday sales, and do your homework.
Also, you have zero guarantee that these services are not reading your data and selling it - like all these services either do, or will do later when they need more money.

Pay yourself, buy your own computer upgrades, use a credit card, wait for a sale, and space out the purchases, either way, you do better yourself, and you know and own your own gear.
